“I have been practicing the ‘Focusing on breathing’ method for almost two years. I was introduced to the methods by CS my office manager. Even after doing the breathing for about an year, I was still experiencing high levels of anxiety. Anxiety has been something I have dealt with for many years but never really addressed it because I would drown it out by obsessing over other things. It got to the point where the people I worked with and hung around could tell when my anxiety was at it’s peak. Thankfully by this point, I could feel my levels increasing too. I needed to do something about it.
I sought help from CS once again. His word of advice was…..”just breathe”. So after him telling and showing me other times that I could use the breathing, I tried it out on my own. I first did my breathing at bed time to go to sleep. And also when I wake up, I breath for at least a half hour in the bed, turning on all sides, as advised by him. To decrease my anxiety, I have also started exercising six days a week, after my breathing in the morning. I work out for an hour, depending on the day. I noticed that even after breathing in the morning and working out, it seemed that my anxiety had increased. So C S explained to me to try to breath for another half an hour after my workout. So here I am a few months into increasing my breathing and I can say my anxiety has decreased at least by 50%. Not only can I feel the difference but I have my friends and peers telling my of the difference they see. I was told that my anxiety levels with my children decreased. When I didnt practice the breathing, I would go from 1 to 10 in a matter of a few seconds. Now, I go from 1 to 3. I can definitely feel my stress level is down too. I can get a full nights sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. To this day, I try and encourage people to at least try the breathing. I have even introduce the method to my children who actually practice it. It may not work for everyone but I an living proof that it has worked for at least one life.”
